I am Originally from Calgary, Canada, life has taken me all over North America and back again, but no place has drawn me to put down roots like Seattle. From the breathtaking views of Lake Washington and Mt. Rainier to the unique coffee shops and restaurants around our city, there truly is no place like Seattle. This is why I became a real estate broker — to help others find a place they can call their own in this beautiful city.
From Madison Park and Queen Anne to the University District and now Bryant, my husband and I have experienced the ins and outs of neighborhoods across the city firsthand. That “insider” neighborhood knowledge, paired with my marketing background and passion for interior design, not only enables me to provide clients with personalized recommendations based on their unique wants and needs but helps ensure they are coming out ahead when buying and selling their condos and single-family homes.
When I’m not helping clients, you can find me researching new ways to keep my toddlers busy, sipping a good cup of black coffee (or 3 because of toddlers), obsessing over mid-century and Scandinavian-designed homes, and planning my next home renovation project.
Candace is one of the hardest working agents I’ve had the pleasure of knowing. Her knowledge, expertise and service for her clients is second to none. I’ve trusted her time and time again with my friends, family, and clients looking to purchase in the Seattle area and she continues to deliver exceptional results. A true professional and high level performer.— Lukas B.
I can't imagine a better realtor experience than the one we had with Candace. She is knowledgeable, responsive, and enjoyable to work with. When we were just looking, she talked us through things and shared listings daily. When we toured properties, she was patient, thoughtful, and fun to spend time with. When it came time to make an offer, she worked quickly and efficiently, she paid attention to details, and she closed the deal smoothly. Every step of the way, it was a pleasure to work with Candace.— Eric H.
I could not recommend Candace more as an agent. We worked with her during the crazy market in 2022 and she was professional, helpful and communicative. You need an agent who will go to bat for you, who will respond quickly, who will educate you and Candace is that and more. She was patient as we looked at different neighborhoods and helped us find the perfect house for us. Event after closing Candace has been extremely helpful in any questions we have! We will definitely look to Candace in the future for any of our real estate needs!— Lori V.
Don’t look any further, just hire Candace. The Seattle market is absolute mayhem, but with Candace, at your side, you will not only get through it but find your dream home in the process. Simply put, Candace is a seasoned real estate agent who knows the greater Seattle market, is super responsive, but more importantly is always on your side. She takes to heart your wish list and vision for your home and helps you not lose sight of that during the entire process. She is also honest and open, which helped immensely as we were faced with the new realities of what it meant to get a home in this market. Candace’s professionalism, experience, and fantasti...— Pam P.
My wife, myself, and our 7-month-old son recently moved from Santa Monica, CA to the Seattle area. It was a challenging endeavor with a new baby, but being in the middle of a pandemic made everything much harder. We couldn’t safely fly back and forth to prep our move or our eventual home, and the housing market in Seattle was feeling like it was quickly leaving us in the dust from an affordability standpoint. A friend introduced us to Candace, and we immediately knew we were in good hands. She quickly briefed on what to expect in such a fast-paced, ever-changing housing market. She patiently counseled us, helped us form realistic expectations, and t...— Jimmie M.
Candace has been very helpful from start to finish with our relocation from Vegas to Seattle. We met her during an open house last year while we were doing our research on potential Seattle neighborhoods to buy a house while our house in Vegas was put on the market. It took a while for our home to sell, and Candace kept in touch with us via email listings of MLS homes meeting our search criteria. After 6 months or so, our Vegas home found a cash buyer and we moved into a corporate rental in Seattle while looking for our new home. Candace met up with us once we arrived in Seattle; we had a pretty intense home search and saw 15 houses or so over 3 day...— Ed L.
Simply put, Candace is the best! This was my first time buying a home, and I'm so thankful to have had her help me through the entire process. I felt immediately comfortable working with Candace, which I found to be so important. Buying a home is such a personal and emotional journey, and you really want to be able to trust that your Realtor® always has your best interest in mind, and Candace absolutely does. She advises and communicates all the different options and strategies without adding pressure. She was incredibly proactive and responsive whether dealing with the seller's agent, the mortgage company, escrow, or even just answering my constant...— Amanda W.
Candace was amazing to work with. We started our home buying process in June 2019 and closed in a home in June 2020. Over this period we had (as buyers) been unsure of what we were looking for and have changed our minds on the types of homes we were looking for several times, through all of this Candace was optimistic, energetic, supportive, responsive, flexible, comforting, and she kept us going. When we finally found the house we liked Candace was very quick to get our paperwork completed, connected us with a better lender, and continued to be responsive and available for all sorts of questions. Its been a pleasure working with her and we could no...— Beza B.
Words cannot fully describe how amazing it has been working with Candace. She helped us find and purchase our first home amid this crazy Seattle housing market. She took to heart all of our interests, but also provided vision, which was so welcome as newbies to the housing market and interior design. She was always accessible, knows how to make your bid competitive, and was incredibly proactive in reaching out and negotiating with the sellers (we landed our home on our first bid with Candace). Most of all, recognizing how emotional this whole process can be, we appreciated her honesty and for just being a steady sounding board (and counselor) for us...— Gina K.
We loved working with Candace on buying our first home and can’t recommend her enough! Candace is a stellar real estate broker: supportive, helpful, knowledgeable, and reassuring. She is a great communicator who was proactive about checking in with us and responsive to our inquiries. She helped us understand the many details to consider when choosing a home and how to navigate an especially competitive market. We appreciate that Candace empowered us to make the choices best for us, while she also advocated for our interests to all parties involved. She’s a wonderful partner to have in the challenges and the joys of the home buying process!— Kareen K.
Candace is the best! My family and I made a cross country move from the east coast a couple of months ago and Candace helped make the move soo much smoother than expected! Candace is absolutely wonderful to work with and really cares about her clients. She was very responsive, thorough, and professional! We truly appreciated her honesty and all the extra legwork she did throughout every aspect of our home buying journey in this crazy market! Her expertise in the field and the current market is beyond impressive. We feel lucky to have met Candace and can’t thank her enough for all the hard work she put in finding us our perfect home!— Esther C.
Candace helped us twice when buying and selling our Condo before leaving Seattle. In both cases Candace was really responsive, she guided us through a completely new process, giving us the peace of mind that everything would turn ok. She is super professional, friendly, and proactive. She is always willing to help, and she thinks in advance to make the process easier and avoid problems. In addition to this, she has really good taste, so she can help the client to imagine how to capitalize on the potential of the house. I would highly recommend Candace to anyone who wants to find a home / sell a house in Seattle.— Fernanda S.
Candace is great to work with. She is personable and always has your best interest in mind. She will take the time to get to know exactly what you want in a home and will fight hard to ensure that you don’t make a desperate decision. You need that, especially in the insane Seattle market. She is also extremely responsive and makes herself available almost 24/7. She was with us through the emotional roller coaster and through 6 crazy offers. In the end, we got the perfect house that checked every single box on our wishlist, plus more. Thank you, Candace!— Pamela F.
I highly recommend Candace Hagen as your next real estate agent! Candace was amazing to work with! The process is stressful, especially during a pandemic. However, because of her expertise, relationships in the market, and encouraging support I felt more at peace throughout the entire journey with her as my agent. When I put an offer in on the house I ended up purchasing she was in regular contact with the seller's Realtor® and with me. Her relationships with my lender and the seller's Realtor® helped the process go smoothly and efficiently.— Kim B.
We just closed the purchase of a terrific home in Seattle yesterday. This would not have been possible without the excellent help from our wonderful agent Candace Hagen. Candace is most knowledgeable, warm, caring, responsive, kind, and always eager to help. Most importantly, Candace is super customer-oriented. She wants nothing less than the very best for us. We totally indulged ourselves in tremendous joy and pleasant surprises throughout the house hunting journey with Candace. We would highly recommend her to anyone.— Wang
Candace was our Realtor® for finding a home for my parents with a water view on one of the islands. She is super responsive, straightforward, kind, and genuine. She cares about her clients and makes a would-be-stressful process as fun as possible. She’ll take the time to make sure you’re getting what you need. When we considered compromising on some of our must-haves, like enough bedrooms for the family to visit, she made sure we stuck to our priorities. I will work with her again in the future.— Mikaela B.
Candace is the best! She helped us throughout the process of buying a new townhouse. She is detail-oriented and well organized. She made us feel that we are the most important client by answering her phone or email at any time and listening to our needs and desires as well as answering any questions we had. Also, she fought for us during the process and gave us the best deal! Very professional and great attitude all the time! We felt very lucky to have her as our agent!— Cesar A.
I cannot even begin to explain, the whole process of buying a home was a breeze. Candace suggested an amazing lender, was always on top of everything, and would show new areas that we hadn’t even considered but were exactly what we were looking for. She is personable and a great advocate for her clients. She was very responsive and answered our questions timely. In this hot market, everyone needs a real estate agent that is committed like she is.— Emma S.
I highly recommend Candace. She’s on top of everything from the start to the end and extremely quick to respond to any questions at any point. Candace is very helpful for the entire process: finding houses, negotiations, and she makes sure that everything is moving forward correctly when in the contract. Don’t hesitate to reach out to Candace, she’s great!— Jason S.
Candace was key for us to be able to get the deal that worked for us in a record time. She helped us while we’re shopping for mortgage loans and helped to speed up the process and got a good deal when making an offer. We’re able to close the deal in just 20 days after seeing the condo for the first time, it wouldn’t have been possible without her.— Marcos B.
Since this was my first time buying a house, I couldn’t have done it without Candace’s guidance! She was extremely responsive and helpful throughout the whole process and made sure I knew what was going on every step of the way. She also gave great advice on how to get the best deal when negotiating. I highly recommend working with her!— Wendy W.
Candace is great! I had a tight deadline so I flew up, viewed 20+ houses over 3 days, put in an offer on a house, and flew back home; a week later my offer was accepted. She made the home buying process easy plus she's fun to do it with.— Ben M.
Candace is absolutely amazing! She was extremely helpful in navigating the home buying process for me as a first-time buyer and taught me so much. She is so responsive, knowledgeable, and kind. I can't recommend her enough!— Delaney S.
